Alicia Keys’ Husband Reacts to Super Bowl Show with Usher

During Usher’s performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show on Sunday, Keys made an appearance playing the piano and singing her hit “Ain’t Got You.” Usher then joined her for a performance of their song “My Boo.” The pair embraced as they finished singing.

However, Beatz took to Instagram after the game to put the rumors to rest. He posted a series of photos from Keys’ performance with Usher, including a shot of the two singers together on stage. He told fans, “Y’all talking about the wrong damn thing!!!”


He went on to highlight Keys’ “amazing dress” and called the Halftime Show “nothing but amazing,” adding, “Congrats @usher and my love @aliciakeys that song is a classic.” Beatz made to sure to write, “We don’t do negative vibes on this side we make history.”
